Unable to achieve download speeds > 1Mbps

Re: Unable to achieve download speeds > 1Mbps

So so frustrating to be unable to get any work done even with their platinum super duty $129.99 a month service. Best I can muster is 1.1Mbps. Ugh!!

Only an $85 service charge to confirm its not on my end.

In the area where Im in NE Oklahoma they over sold the Ultra plan and my speed dropped like yours, the only way to get it back was to go to a lower plan now I have my speed back, maybe they can try changing your plan on a temp basis to see if thats the case with yours

Thanks. I have tried every plan they offer. I even tried to get them to diconnect all together and reset the account on their end as a last resort. Technical support was unable to do it and referred me to billing department. Billing department can only suspend service, not shut off account and reauthorize modem. It's a problem on their end according to the tech. Since this is a cabin and were are here a few times a month, this will likely drag on for a while.

Welcome to the community and thank you for posting your speed test results. We can certainly help address your concerns. We will run remote diagnostics on your site to determine if there is anything up with the HughesNet equipment and their connection to the satellite. In the case that your diagnostics are fine, I'll go ahead an escalate your case to our engineers, after which we will keep you posted here in your thread.

Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

Liz, your customer rancourtr should be refunded her $85 service visit charge.  You at least know enough at this point that she should not be responsible for this.  You have been unable to deliver the service that she is paying for.

Welcome to the fun of Hughesnet rancourtr.  Remember, their favorite saying is "our speeds aren't guaranteed".  As long as you can connect and download something, they don't really care about speed.   Good luck.

Re: Unable to achieve download speeds > 1Mbps

I haven't seen my statement, but the technical support supervisor indicated they would be crediting my account for the service call. It truly is a mystery. Good signal and equipment works - but only in the middle of the night. Tech support follow scripted responses and aren't very good at diagnosing problems. Common sense would dictate its not equipment if advertised speeds are achieved at points during a 24 hour period. Hardware issues are generally there 24/7. It acts like I am up against my data cap, but they have verified it's not the issue. Only have used a small amount mainly running speed tests. Forget getting work done using my VPN as that decreases speeds even further.
